“Spare, haunting, uncompromising, 'Ida' is a film of exceptional artistry whose emotions are as potent and persuasive as its images are indelibly beautiful.”~Los Angeles Times
Aroview: The ghosts of the Holcaust and Stalinism haunt this modern masterpiece about a young nun, who on the verge of taking her vows, visits her only surviving family member, a former Communist prosecutor. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and the first Polish film to do so.

5 stars (Exceptional) Intense, quiet b&w exploration of agonizing internal issues faced by many Polish women as late as 1960's with lives ruined by WW2, Holocaust & Russians. Stunning photography and acting. Subtitles too fast but the main story is clear. Highly recommended~Sandy
